Sonata Software, a Bangalore, India-based IT software consultancy whose clients include Microsoft, Oracle and HP, has established a new development facility in Redmond. Redmond City Council President Hank Margeson helped cut the ribbon on the facility, which has room to employ up to 100 people.
“We believe that having development facilities closer to our clients and building scale and capability in specialised technologies and applications are an integral part of our long term strategy to be a partner of choice in select verticals and specialised horizontals,” said Srikar Reddy, CEO of Sonata Software, in a statement. “This development facility will enable deeper engagement and business development opportunities in the market.”
Sonata is hiring people from the University of Washington and Washington State University as part of its LEAD program, an offering that includes an “Earn-as-you-Learn” paid training phase in emerging new technology areas.
Last year, Sonata was named Microsoft’s “Cloud Partner of the Year” in India. It employed 2,257 people as of last March.
